Well, after serving for 8 1/2 years as student/university pastor at Cornerstone in Simi Valley, Ca I planted and currently pastor Colossae Church in Portland, OR. I’ve had the privilege of writing a number of books that hopefully people are finding helpful. These books include: Better Off Without Jesus, Worlds Apart, College Ministry 101, College Ministry From Scratch, 99 Thoughts for College age People and also co-author another book called The Slow Fade with my friends Reggie Joiner and Abbie Smith.
I have the privilege of being able to speak around the country to youth/college students and leaders in many different contexts and am honored to serve as a consultant with churches and denominations. I really have a heart of discipleship and for whatever reason God has opened up some doors for me to speak to that issue in the area of college ministry. So, I’m happy to do that. As I’m out and about I really enjoy meeting new people, so I’ve posted some (not all) speaking engagements (here) that I know I will have some extra time at. If you’re in the area shoot me a note and I’d be happy to hang out for lunch or a cup of coffee.
My wife’s name is Barbara and we have three beautiful daughters: Karis, Hope and Sayla. I’d honestly rather be at home with them than anywhere else in the world.
